Bug Description

In the latest nightly: (5.0.0-rc2-dev-438-ge9ef555c6)

In the symbol library editor, the only way to copy/paste/remove(should really be delete), is the context menu. and you cannot ctrl multi select like a filesystem.
could you make ctrl+c/v/select work, and selecting a part then pressing delete to work too?
If you don't feel like it I can make this a different feature / bug request.

without the ability to multi select or hotkey copy/paste, reorganizing libraries is a pain. especially with the amount of scrolling up/down that is needed if they are alphabetically far apart.

This seems like low-hanging fruit for interface unification in 5.1

Current master already handles cut/copy/paste/delete for block operations in the Symbol Editor. Item selection will come for free once we switch eeschema to the Tool Framework.

OK, I'll move this to fix committed then as the remaining block selection issue is located in lp:1709999
